I ended up going to my favorite used bookstore this weekend and walked out with way more books than I needed. But hey, gotta feed the addiction. The books that I received both from Netgalley and the Library are the ones that will be reviewed on this blog sometime in the near future. Curious to see if any of you have read any of the books listed here and what your thoughts are. Also, did you guys get any good books this week?

    1. I love cozies. They really are great if you want to read something light and quick. Glad to see we have similar tastes. Thanks for stopping by.

    1. I really really really want to read Russka. I have a new found love of all things Russian. The bookstore had a copy, but it was very smelly and yellowed and I hate books that smell. So I got this one instead. I must get my hands on Russka though, because it sounds fabulous.

  3. I hear you on the used-book store thing. Gah! I always come out with far too many. And the trouble is there are two used-book stores and a library within walking distance from my house, which only means trouble. No wonder I'm hopelessly addicted. Anyhoo, your haul this weeks looks splendid! I had a pretty good reading week myself. Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

    1. I cannot walk by the bookstore and leave empty-handed. I have no self control. I have to avoid going by the bookstores because they get me in trouble every single time. Glad to see that I am not the only one with this problem..LOL.

    1. I am actually reading 'A Dangerous Inheritance' right now as for 'The Aviator's Wife', I'll be reading that one closer to the release date as I have some others I have to get to first. Glad to see we share similar tastes! Thanks for stopping by.

  9. That's a wonderful pile of books to look forward to. I didn't know there was a new Flavia so I'll be looking for that one and I like the look of The Aviator's Wife.
    Sarum is one of my all-time favourites and I've read The Painted Bridge which was quite good.
